Premiere of a 90 minute film that tells the story of the Cival War soldier's burial plot in Clinton, Illinois. Using cinematic techniques and many rarely-seen images, this production weaves a gripping tale of the hardships, perils, and life altering events endured by the DeWitt County soldiers who left home to fight the war. Along the way, the film re-constructs the history of the sacred ground the people of DeWitt County Illinois set apart for their beloved dead.
